Get a Library Card: Let's Make Libraries cool!


Dear Lawmakers,

I was at my Library on Saturday, and my Library was empty.  All the knowledge and wisdom in the world for free and it is not being used.  Information that can change and transform a child's life. Information on how to become rich and powerful, information on how to be a singer, business owner, etc. and it's not being used, this is deplorable. I think we need to Invest in a Library Card Marketing Campaign. A nation wide campaign where we push to sign children up for library cards and explain the benefits of having a library card. We can set up library card sign up events across the country especially in low income communities.  We need to invest in our nation's libraries, and equip them with the latest technologies like IPADS to make reading more enjoyable for the youth.  Our Children are bombarded with reading in school, so much so that they connect books with school and passing a test and not for personal growth and advancement, I think this has to change. We have to make reading fun and enjoyable and not a chore. Again, We ask that our Government invest in our nation's libraries and invest in a library card marketing campaign to better prepare our youth for the future.

Thank you,
